Florida Judge Grants Bond to George Zimmerman for $1 Million
A Florida judge granted bond to George Zimmerman for a million dollars.
Zimmerman was arrested after shooting Trayvon Martin.
Autopsy results after the shooting revealed that Trayvon Martin had only two injuries on his body – a fatal gunshot wound and bloody knuckles. On the other hand, George Zimmerman did have injuries, including a fractured nose, two black eyes and cuts on the back of his head. George Zimmerman passed a lie detector test the day after the Trayvon Martin shooting.
The AP reported:
The neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin can be released from jail while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge.
A Florida judge on Thursday granted bond for a second time to George Zimmerman. The amount of the bond was not immediately released.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester had revoked Zimmerman’s $150,000 bond last month after prosecutors told the judge Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about how much money they had during an April bond hearing.
Prosecutors said a website Zimmerman created for his legal defense had raised $135,000 at the time of his first bond hearing. Zimmerman and his wife did not mention the money then, and Shellie Zimmerman even said the couple had limited resources because she was a student and he wasn’t working.
